- If you love the Hand Hammered - ness of the Paiste Masters Series but still want that inimitable CLEANER 602 DARK Paiste tone…
- …..and then want to crash on it too…..
- Then get this 22”!
- This gorgeous Prototype is a perfect blend of the Masters and 602 Series with a pinch of Signature thrown in.
- Fully lathed, shimmering Paiste 22” heavily Hand Hammered Dark Prototype in Immaculate Condition.
- Check out the craftsmanship on this resplendent Proto! Extremely Hand Hammered surface - I mean more than almost any Paiste you’ll see. Rippled all over the surface.
- It falls perfectly between a Masters and a 602 Modern Essentials.
- 3026 grams gives it a medium weight - similar to a Signature FULL Ride but this 22” is Hand Hammered - it’s more complex and organic than the Signature Series. And it’s definitely darker.
- But it’s also cleaner looking and sounding than the Masters Series, and a bit smoother than the Modern Essentials.
- That’s the magic. It’s a perfect blend.
- Dark. Strong, crisp stick attack with a chime-like definition that’s dark. Medium low in pitch. Plays medium full with still a strong attack. Classic 6” Paiste bell that cuts like a Signature Series. Shadows of Hand Hammered complexity.
- Overall very dark and SMOOTH sounding.
- Absolutely GLORIOUS sounding DARK CRASH.
- Paiste makes great cymbals and great series, but sometimes you wish they would blend two series together!
- Well here they did!
- Perfect for soft to loud settings.
- Immaculate condition! Perfect.
- Nothing like it in the catalog.
